Galerie Buchholz, Fasanenstraße 30, 10719 Berlin
In her fourth solo exhibition with Galerie Buchholz, Lucy McKenzie has taken over the upstairs gallery to install a simulation of a private dwelling - the quintessential ‘live-work’ interior associated with young cultural entrepreneurs.
Wozownia Art Gallery, ul. Rabiańska 20, 87-100 Toruń
Ewa Doroszenko and Jacek Doroszenko's latest exhibition combines sound installations, video works and a unique electronic audio composition, mixed with sounds recorded in Barcelona and lo-fi music.
Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, Drake Circus, Plymouth PL4 8AJ
The first ARTIST ROOMS exhibition at Plymouth Museum presents a relatively minimal but carefully selected range of works which bring to light much of Gerhard Richter’s artistic complexity. Review by Edith Doove
CIRCA Projects, John Joyce Building, Saltmeadows Road, Gateshead NE8 3AH
‘Approximation in the digital age to a humanity condemned to disappear’, seems like a prophetic title, steeped in a type of dystopian rhetoric; in fact it is a much more specific, contemplative description of the dissolution of smaller cultural identities, irreverently ignored and ousted by globalised industry and capital. Review by Josh Wilson
Jacob Lewis Gallery, 521 West 26th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10001
In Weinstein’s ‘É Lobro’ there are references to the voyeuristic gaze, the coy flirtations of a beautiful but non-emotive female character, and the delicious precision of Death bathed in precious metal. Review by Shana Beth Mason
Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High St, London E1 7QX
The exhibition opens with a photograph of Palestinian translator and scholar Wael Zuaiter. It shows his body awkwardly slumped on a street in Rome, following his assassination by Israeli Mossad agents in 1972. Siobhan Leddy reviews this complex research project.
Royal Academy, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BD
It is the first room that captures the imagination in Ai Weiwei’s striking, frequently spectacular exhibition. To reach it, first you must pass through a thicket of reconstructed trees, each clamped into place by rusting iron girders in the RA courtyard. A counter to these snarling, twisted, fairy tale forms, the opening room eschews theatricality to thrilling effect. Edward Ball reviews
Sprüth Magers, 7A Grafton St, London W1S 4EJ
Latent Forms marks a stark departure from Demand's distinctive photographic style. Although three-dimensional architectural models remain his subjects, he has neither constructed them nor photographed them to look like real places. Review by Aris Kourkoumelis
Kunsthalle Wien, Museumsplatz 1 1070 Vienna, Austria
'Political Populism' is the extremely populist title for an exhibition which aims to critically question this phenomenon through artistic means. The exhibition is not designed to present a picture of the cultural and historical development of populist tendencies but instead gathers over twenty international artists’ works and showcases them according to diverse topics.
The RYDER,19a Herald Street, London E2 6JT
Galvani's exhibition, building on previous displays in Mexico and the US, plays with time, space, place and sound via fragmented or itinerant perspectives. Jaime Marie Davis reviews.
Leeds Art Gallery, The Headrow, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS1 3AA
Every five years the British Art Show, now in its eighth edition, tours four venues throughout the UK. The scale of the exhibition is colossal, the curatorial impetus similarly large in that it seeks to gauge the current climate of contemporary British art. Review by Fiona Haggerty
